Car Racer, 11, Dies After Crash
An 11-year-old world champion mini stock car driver who was seriously injured in a crash has died.
Keir Millar, from Lockerbie, was hurt in a race at Lochgelly Raceway in Fife on Saturday.
He was taken to hospital in Edinburgh and his family said tonight that he had since died.
In a statement issued through NHS Lothian they asked for space and time to grieve.
They said: "Due to the injuries sustained in an accident at the weekend Keir has sadly passed away.
"We, as a family, request space and time to grieve in private.''
Keir took part in the Ministox racing series and last year won the Ninja Kart Championship in England.
A race at Lochgelly later this week has been cancelled out of respect.
The youngster died at around 4pm at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.
In a further statement issued through police, Keir's family said they were "extremely distraught''.
They said: "He was a much loved son and brother and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.''
The number of child sex offences recorded by Scottish police rose to an all-time high last year to an average of nearly 12 a day, according to a charity.

The wife of cyclist Sir Chris Hoy has told how the shock experience of giving birth to a premature baby has propelled her into a key charity role.
